The Sun (Malaysia) - - FRONT PAGE -

Com­mis­sion (MACC) has ten­ta­tively agreed to Low’s re­quest to have his state­ment recorded in Dubai.

Sources said an MACC team un­der­tak­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tions will leave for Dubai at a time to be de­cided to meet Low, whose real name is Low Taek Jho, within the next “two or three weeks”.

It is learnt that dis­cus­sions to ne­go­ti­ate terms for the meet­ing are ongoing be­tween lead in­ves­ti­ga­tors and his lawyers.

Sources said the 1MDB probe team, led by a se­nior MACC of­fi­cer, will first track the money trail of the scan­dal in four coun­tries prior to the meet­ing.

The coun­tries are Switzer­land, United

States, France and the United Arab Emirates.

At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Tommy Thomas said on Tues­day that Malaysia was seek­ing mu­tual le­gal as­sis­tance from the coun­tries to seek help and col­lab­o­ra­tion in the in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

A war­rant of ar­rest was ob­tained by MACC against Low last week af­ter re­peated calls for him to show up for ques­tion­ing went un­heeded.

On Tues­day, Low said through his lawyer that he is will­ing to co­op­er­ate and meet the 1MDB task force, but will only do so in Dubai.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors had said that Low was a key fig­ure in the probe and would be able to shed light into the case, in­clud­ing the where­abouts of the miss­ing bil­lions linked to 1MDB.

At­tempts to con­tact sev­eral top of­fi­cials of the 1MDB task force for com­ments yes­ter­day went unan­swered.
